#error (C# Reference)

 

Updated: July 20, 2015

For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

#error lets you generate an error from a specific location in your code. For example:

#error Deprecated code in this method.  

A common use of #error is in a conditional directive.

It is also possible to generate a user-defined warning with #warning.

// preprocessor_error.cs  
// CS1029 expected  
#define DEBUG  
class MainClass   
{  
    static void Main()   
    {  
#if DEBUG  
#error DEBUG is defined  
#endif  
    }  
}
